    I'm not saying what they will and won't approve. I'm saying whatever rules that are put on it will be broken and manipulated to find an advantage. Just like every other rule they have.

If you allow ANY payment that is not specifically controlled, then you open up huge opportunities for malfeasance.
    I'm trying to figure out how paying players to come to a school under the table would be something that would be a NEW abuse of the system.

    Like i said a bunch of people acting like NCAA isn’t going to have set rules and regulations with this. A bunch of people in here acting like the NCAA is going to make it a free for all and allow a booster to give Jake Fromm $100,000 for his autograph.

    There are already NCAA rules making it illegal to pay players for a job that they don’t do. Already rules in place about how much you can pay them for legit work they do. But no according to some around here the NCAA is about to just tear all that up and say “have at it” apparently.

    There is a reason scholarship limits needed to be imposed.

    The deepest pocketed programs will stack/stock more talent, more five/4 stars will congregate where more money is. Programs like UGA and the elites would definitely do this to keep players away from other teams. They've done it before, they'd do it again.

    The less $ programs (still with more $ than us) will stock as many players as they can afford at the highest level they can get.

    It would/could have a significant impact on us and widen the gap.

    Unless I’m missing something I don’t think the NCAA is planning to do away with scholarship and/or roster size limitations.

He's going to take the money and then transfer after his 1st year anyway and get booster #2 to buy 3000 of his jerseys at the new school.

    They know the rules. If they don't want to play by those rules, then they are free to find another way to get a free education.
    I think assuming all the players are idiots who can't think long term is a mistake.

    The idea that Alabama boosters would pay a bunch of fringe players thousands of dollars to sit on the bench is foolishness. This is even without NCAA limitations.

    It simply won't happen. Some of y'all forget how open markets work.

    The 5 star/4 star kids will get big $$$ thrown their way. 95% of the rest of the players will get offered some sweet booster $$$ for sure...but not enough for anyone to care.

    Again...25 scholarship limit already takes care of this. The NCAA could go even further by limiting roster to 100 kids.

    These crazy scenarios y'all think up are easily solved. Let the market play itself out. It makes no difference to me. I have no idea why I'm supposed to care whether some insane booster wants to give his hard earned money to Shai Werts.

    I couldn't care any less. If Clemson wants to offer a kid like Shai 25k to play DB and Some GS booster is only offering 10k...who cares. Then you sell him on the opportunity to play QB.

    But again...the idea that ANY FBS booster would pay big money for a 2-3 star kid who is marginally recruited to fill out the class... come on.

    NCAA already has limitations on how many kids can be in fall camp I think. Like 105. Which if that’s still true then it goes with what you and I have already been saying that teams aren’t going to pay scout team kids when that money could go to lock down a 5*.
